Sun Kin – Coming Back, Again

Sun Kin is the indie-pop project of the very talented (Oakland-based/Bombay-born) Kabir Kumar.  Kabir made an appearance on the Fadeawayradiate C86 cover compilation, and we are pleased that he will make another appearance with us on the forthcoming Yacht Rock cover comp. Sun Kin just released a third album entitled “Private Time” on January 17th, which was recorded with a whole bunch of guest appearances from fellow indie-musicians from around the East Bay area. The single Coming Back, Againis a poised, introspective track – “a short, sweet tone poem about loss, and how it lingers” – that sounds like a fusion of Steely Dan and Prince, finished off by a smooth sax and some silky harmonies. Kabir: “Many of the stories in Private Time ponder the weight of tradition, the way societal narratives about “how things have always been” can erase a life of possibility. Pressure from Asian immigrant families to accumulate riches, produce children, and cement monogamous partnerships seem ludicrous when stacked up against a world literally falling into the sea.”
